Socrates x Noguchi Field Guide: Exploring a “New Nature”

Saturday, October 15, 2022
11 am-1 pm

“The nature of trees and grass is one thing. But there are many degrees of nature. Interstellar spaces are also nature. There is human nature. In the city, you have to have a new nature. Maybe you have to create that nature.” Isamu Noguchi

Join Noguchi educator Matthew Capezzuto in a kaleidoscope-building workshop at Socrates Sculpture Park. Examine the ways Noguchi looked to the sky for inspiration, and then creatively reuse discarded materials to make a device that reframes the environment around us. Turn your kaleidoscope toward the Manhattan skyline, and take a fresh look at our place in the universe. All ages welcome. Participants will be given a free pass to visit The Noguchi Museum after the workshop. Registration will open Saturday, September 24.
